    The minute that I received my acceptance call into the RN program, I started looking at ways to save. No eating out, no shopping for clothes, and no going to the movies, no nothing. I plan to cut my cable in January since I'll have no time to watch it anyway. I will be getting a tune up on my already old car. If it can keep pushing for another 2 years, I'll be fine.

    I understand I receive my acceptance letter and trying to cut back every where i can. Put my old car in the shop to be repaired.

    We got rid of our home phone and satellite TV and bought a couple Rokus so we can watch Netflix and Hulu. Saved about $140. We're also on a strict food/gas budget and we refinanced my car to bring down the payments.

    We're relatively pretty frugal to begin with so there wasn't all that much to cut back on, but we're doing what we can!

    Frugalness is the way to go. Thankfully, my parents offered me the chance to move back in with them as long as I remain successful in school, so that was a big help. Also, I cut back on a lot of luxuries, as well as, I plan on changing phone plans as well to save even more money. Every little bit helps! That difference can be gas money! Not to mention, I worked my butt off the last 3 years as a pharmacy tech at two jobs, 60 hour weeks most of the time, to save up for school as well.

    I have no idea how I will cope. As a single mom, working a full time job I don't have the abililty to soley focus on school. My only wish for the next two years is to finish nursing school, raise my son, continue working full time and manage to keep my sanity.

    Make sure you thank your parents often for the wonderful gift of rent-free living and food on the table. What great people You've got a good plan there. It will pay off later when you're done with school.

    Without my income tax, i probably wouldn't have finished my program. Times were tough, just limit your eating out. Prepare all meals! BUY used books.
